In three years I will wake suddenly in the night and, with a rush of adrenaline mixed with some shame and self loathing, the little video recorder in my head will play the highlight real once again.
Why? Well, recently I was fortunate enough to be invited to an industry event for BIM sponsored by Victoria University and Engineers Australia. Mark Bew was giving a presentation on data and optimising built assets,
Last night saw the successful launch of the Australasian Procurement and Construction Council (APCC) and Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF) BIM Knowledge and Skills framework at Standards Australia in Sydney.
BIM Academy is proud to have been a contributing partner to this initiative over the last two years and Will Joske received an award of appreciation at the launch ceremony.
This Framework is an important and timely resource that articulates the BIM knowledge and skills required for disciplines in the building and construction industry,
Last week saw the successful launch of BIM Academy’s Virtual Project in Australia. Hosted by The University of Canberra BIM Academy ran a workshop for 18 delegates comprising a cross section of the industry and academia in Canberra. The workshop was a taster day for Virtual Project – BIM Academy’s unique three day course uses BIM and collaborative working principles to allow project teams to work collectively in a controlled environment.
This video is based on the Sydney Opera House BIM implementation. This is one of three exemplar case studies carried out by the Sustainable Built Environment National Research Centre (SBEnrc) as part of Project 2.34 Driving Whole-of-life Efficiencies through BIM and Procurement.
BIM Academy were appointed by Sydney Opera House as part of a team to deliver a ground-breaking interface between traditional Building Management Control Systems, Building Information databases and Building Information Modelling (BIM).
Whilst growth rates in the construction industry across most of Australia have tapered-off recently, Sydney’s construction sector continues to boom. But where is BIM in this boom? Claire Bowles, Senior Project Manager at BIM Academy takes a look.2015 has seen the rise of BIM being smartly adopted on Sydney projects including the Moorebank Units Relocation Development. This involves a $870 million,
UK’s national BIM platform BIMcrunch recently invited our very own Peter Barker for a BIM Brunch intewiew focussing on BIM Academy’s monumental 2015, with achievements including: participation in two Build Earth Live competitions; being one of the influential companies to form the new Dynamo Build initiative; project bidding triumphs on the Sydney Opera House; Knowledge Transfer Partnership success; and perhaps most importantly, their continued growth in Australia.
Peter is at the helm of our success as Managing Director of BIM Academy and Director at Ryder Architecture.
In partnership with Synergie Training, BIM Academy took Virtual Project to Inverness last week. Not only did I get to travel with the team to Inverness, I had the opportunity to develop a greater understanding of Building Information Modelling (BIM) through this unique and innovative course available to all in the construction industry.
Virtual Project is lead by skilled, knowledgeable and friendly BIM Academy trainers
I personally do not come from a construction background;
